Don Gage puts his own personal bias against medical marijuana before the law & the needs of his constituents who have a doctor's recommendation for it's use. He is as clueless about this issue as he is callous in denying "safe & legal access" to those who desperately need it. Don Gage took an oath of office to abide by & uphold "all" the laws of the state of California,not just the ones that he agrees with. His actions in conspiring with others on the City Council to obstruct state law constitutes malfeasance in office. He should be charged,tried,convicted,removed from office & be banned from ever seeking public office again. It's always good to know who your enemies are & the list of those who are endorsing this self-righteous simpleton is a who's who of our adversaries. Don Gage is wrong about medical marijuana dispensaries & wrong for Gilroy. Intelligent & compassionate voters will Elect Dr. Paul Arellano (D) for Mayor,the clear choice for a better Gilroy today & tomorrow. On the other hand Councilman Dion Bracco (convicted meth dealer) has the backing of anti-marijuana zealot Ron "The Clueless Crusader" Kirkish,whoever said that politics make strange bedfellows must know them personally !
